Kanye West Is Back On Twitter And He Said He Loves Trump And Called Emma Gonzalez A Hero In The Same Week

@kanyewest / Twitter

Kanye West is back on Twitter after a long break from the social media platform. The rapper returned in true Kanye form and tweeted about every thing and any thing that crossed his mind. He has been tweeting about shoesLamar Odom, shared random inspirational quotes, and it seemed like he wasn’t going to stop.

Then West took things a step further and tweeted about his love and appreciation for President Trump. Despite Kanye visiting Donald Trump soon after the election, many people had no idea his love for Trump was that deep. Last week, West took to Twitter to rant saying: “Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.” West followed that up with, “You don’t have to agree with Trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”

Then, West turned his Twitter attention to gun reform activists and Parkland shooting survivor Emma González and things didn’t work out as West probably hoped for.

Kanye West expressed on Twitter that Emma González is his hero.

Now, some people might be really happy for Kanye West to call them his hero. However, a gun reform activist, who grew up in the age of social media, probably isn’t going to be the best audience following a pro-Trump message.

People on social media were confused by the pro-Trump and pro-gun control messaging.

It’s totally cool to support contradictory causes, right?

González took the moment to give some love to her hero, James Shaw Jr.

James Shaw Jr. is the man who saved the lives of several people at the Waffle House in Tennessee after a gunman opened fire and killed four people. Shaw Jr. didn’t have a gun himself but he saw an opportunity to subdue the gunman and took the chance ending the shooting.

People applauded the teen for using the tweet as a moment to highlight a hero.

Just imagine yourself in high school getting a tweet from West calling you his hero.

West later tweeted that he shaved his head after the gun control advocate.

González didn’t respond to this tweet.

There is a lot of confusion on Twitter about West’s tweets.

It wasn’t long ago that West shared a photo of a signed “Make America Great Again” hat.

Clearly the people are demanding some answers.

So, which is it, West?

Here are 19 Latinos who we still think about even years after their season because they are just so good.
